Festive NOTD's!

Happy Boxing Day everyone! Did you get up bright and early to scope out the deals? There's lots going on online if you don't want to venture out - go to your favourite store's website and see what's on sale :) If you celebrate Christmas I hope you had a great day filled with family, merriment and presents [my husband actually got me two polishes - I didn't think I'd get any beauty-related gifts (since I have so much already) but there was Essie Mademoiselle and Essie Turquoise and Caicos tucked away in my stocking!]

So I wanted to share with you two NOTD's I rocked so far during this Christmas season.

First is an easy Christmas mani using two polishes from my December Julep Maven box - Scarlett (red shimmer) and Harper (green glitter).

Gorgeous shades!

Scarlett is an absolutely gorgeous shimmy, candy apple red and I like the contrast with Harper (green base with green glitter and tiny flecks of blue, which I think it gives it more dimension.) I also like how with a topcoat (I used Out the Door), Harper is smooth, not bumpy like many other all-glitter polishes.

Obviously, this mani would work with other red/green polishes, but if possible try to mix up textures to keep it fresh (and a little funky!)

The second is Kelara Lacquers Festivus (yes, from Seinfeld). Kelara Lacquers is an wonderful little indie polish company that sells on Etsy; Festivus (multi-glitter) is from their holiday collection - "Festivus for the Restofus!"

Cute little bottle!

I love this multi-glitter!

This is a standout polish that sparkles like mad under the Christmas lights! It's one of those polishes where the multicoloured glitter makes you want to keep staring at your nails - it definitely catches your eye. I think this is a really fun choice for the holiday season.

What polishes did you reach for/are you wearing over the holidays? And what do you think would make a great New Year's Eve mani?


  1. I really love the first look. Very holiday themed. The second is perfect for new years eve.

    Happy New Year

    1. I think any glitter really is great for New Years (it screams celebrate)! Happy New Year to you too Cindy!

  2. Very festivus!! I have yet to try my December Maven box polishes, but Scarlett and Harper look great!

    1. I just put on Vivien and Ivy today and that's another great combo - the December box is quite the winner!


Leave me your thoughts! I love to hear from followers and readers :)
